A Wee Bit O' Me Plunder!

As promised, I thought I'd share a few photos of the fun things I found in Galena. First are some beautiful yarns that I bought in the yarn shop. They had a whole basket full of these little 3 yard skeins for textile artists:

Fibers and Beads

The beads came from a shop called, The Bead Bar. These black beads also came from The Bead Bar:

One of my prize finds was this highly sought after book by Carol Samples, The Treasury Of Crazy Quilt Stitches. I found this in a fabric store called Phat 1/4's :

CQ Stitches

And as you can see by this block which I started on last night, I'm already putting my new book to good use:

Autumn Rose Block

When I complete this project, I'll most likely finish it into a handbag for my Etsy Boutique.

I bought some other things too including a gorgeous beaded Victorian style handbag. I'll post a photo of that tomorrow.

Hi there. I ran across your stuff on the old Michael's website and I LOVE it! You are incredibly talented.

Just wanted you to know. ;o)

What wonderful stuff you found in Galena! I love the way the butterfly turned out. The minute I saw that picture, I remembered the design. It's one I saved to try. I love how you did yours.

Carole's book is one of my two favorite ones. I'm getting this one quite tattered and thinking that I will need another one before long.
